Today saw yet another landmark day for Android, making an official trajectory into wearables with Google’s announcement of Android Wear. Minutes later, Motorola made the Moto 360 Android Watch official, which runs on Android Wear. LG wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines and they’ve just made the LG G Watch by Android Wear official.
LG is claiming the G Watch will work with a wide range of Android devices, unlike the Samsung Gear which only works with Samsung devices, and will be made available in the 2nd quarter of 2014.
Interesting to note is LG’s description of the development process:
LG G Watch Specs and G Watch pictures have yet to be released… all we’ve got to on are the above tidbits and the iconic picture. It looks (based on the picture), very thin, minimalistic, and plastic with a glossy face frame and matte lower half.
I’ll reserve judgement until I see more, but I’m sure our readers will make their opinions widely known in the comments. That’s your queue!
